|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Settle into an Adirondack chair on the dock....sip your glass of wine...listen to the haunting call of the loons....and take in some of the best scenery the Moosehead Lake region has to offer!
If powerboats and jet skis are your thing, Wilson Pond is not the lake for you! However, it is a paddler's paradise with countless coves and rocky islands to explore. This seven mile long, crystal clear lake is home to brook trout, lake trout and Salmon...as well as moose, beaver, bald eagles and countless species of waterfowl. A conservation easement around much of the lake provides a feeling of wilderness that is unmatched in such an accessible setting.
The camp is situated on a private point at the end of the road, a secluded getaway only minutes from the town of Greenville and Moosehead Lake.
The original cabin was built in the 1920's and we have preserved the rustic character of the 'old camp'. A newer addition provides modern amenities, yet retains the feel of a hunting and fishing lodge.
The main floor has a great room design with a kitchen and living room- complete with walls of windows looking out to the lake. A modern bath with a shower and claw-footed bathtub, and a bedroom containing 2 twin beds complete the downstairs. Upstairs you will find two additional bedrooms, as well as a quarter bath. Both upstairs bedrooms have large skylights which allow you to fall asleep under a canopy of stars!
We are Sally and Jamie, your hosts. As fun loving outdoor enthusiast, we are eager to share our home away from home. It is the perfect setting to enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful lake and all that surround it.

We loved this place! Nice and new, lots of room, lots of amenities, just enough personal touches, and a shiny, "new rustic" look. It's very comfortable. We especially appreciated going to sleep in an upstairs bedroom with the full moon shining in through the skylight! Easy access for swimming, small fixed dock for boating -- also a great place to sit and have morning coffee, enjoying the wildlife and the views across the lake to the mountains. There are very few power boats to interfere with a good paddle across Lower Wilson and into the even-less-settled Upper Wilson Pond. The lake is pretty peaceful (there's a conservation easement around a large part of it), and the nearest cabin is just far enough away to allow a lot of privacy and quiet. This cabin's the last one on the road, too, so there are NO passing cars. We've tried a few different rentals in the Moosehead area, but we won't have to look any further. Next time we get back up there, this place will be our destination.
This cabin on Wilson pond and the property surrounding it, are absolutely Beautiful! Jamie and Sally have put a lot of love into this cabin and it shows, in fact you feel it.
If you enjoy being surrounded by Nature in a secluded setting, this is the place for you. I have always wanted to see and hear loons, I heard them within moments of our arrival. We got to watch them with binoculars often and heard them even more often. We also saw a Bald Eagle, Ducks, Common Merganser, along with lots of various song birds that were always at the feeder. I heard a Barred Owl right outside the window several times at night.
When and if you feel the need for more, Greenville is a short drive. There you will find lots of cool things to take home and some of the friendliest people God has put on the face of the earth. I highly recommend the seafood chowder at Kelly's Landing, it alone is almost worth the drive from PA. Almost everywhere you look there are beautiful views to take in. I really enjoyed our stop at the Spotted Cat Winery. The wine is good, the owners are friendly, the place is just charming!
If you are looking for a HomeAway that is lovingly cared for, on a secluded pond,
with beauty everywhere, you have found it here. I will never forget my week at Wilson Pond!
